Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To bring us full circle to the top of the thread, how about farming franchises?
In exchange for your investment and part of profits, you get help buying land, training, and a silly paper hat.
(Other people than I that don't just come here for the jokes could probably expand on that idea. More likely they will point us to a website that shows it's already being done, and done better.)

(If farmers could have actual holidays, I think it could be a lot more popular. But no, those spoiled cows want to be milked, like every day.)

(Here's another one: you invest in your local farm, in exchange for 5% off produce. Farmers get capital, and a guaranteed market. And you could help out plant the emus or whatever.)
